New "Peanuts" Motion Comics Available on iTunes
Charles Schulz’s iconic Peanuts comic strip is the latest comic to be turned into one of Warner Bros’ Motion Comics, with several classic 1964 comic strips turned into 3-4 minute Flash animated videos available at the iTunes store. Individual episodes containing two cartoons are 99 cents each, and the full “season” can be purchased for $7.99, although two episodes can be downloaded for free for a limited time. When speaking with the Associated Press, Charles Schulz’s widow Jeannie Schulz noted that she thinks, “CG doesn’t quite look right” when animating the Peanuts characters, and joked that, “I’m sort of glad that Sparky — Mr. Schulz — isn’t alive (to see it),” saying he wouldn’t have understood why people would want to watch programs on their telephones.
